Google street view -> Z scale model
« on: January 21, 2010, 06:09:10 PM »
So I had this idea to use Google Street View imagery as the basis of a model.  I just grabbed some screen shots, cleaned them up in Photoshop, and printed them out at 1200dpi.  I could have done better by zooming in with streetview and stitching a bunch of images together.

Attempt #1:

This actually looks pretty good at normal viewing distance.  Keep in mind the building is about 1.25 inches tall, so you are seeing it many times larger than it is.
